Sweet dusky and downy violets, cassis jam and balsamic jus flow through this Amarone-style wine through to a vanilla-pod finish. Blueberries, potpourri and alluring, intriguing violet flow throughout this plush, off-dry and full-bodied blend of Malbec, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Bonarda. What this wine has in impact (a lot!) it lacks in finesse (overt and clunky) at this stage. After harvest, the grapes were placed on drying racks outside, where wind and the elements dried the berries and concentrated the flavours and sugars. (The grapes lost approximately 30% of their weight in this process.) After a wild yeast ferment and MLF in French oak barriques, this wine aged for 12 months in new French oak. Alberto Antonini consults on this project, one run by winemaker Pablo Sanchez.
